Botany / Obstbau
German term or phrase: Knip-Baum
I'm translating a short description about a company that grows apples.

I've found various web references to "Knip-Baum" being used in English, but I'm not 100% convinced that these are reliable sources. Does anyone know if there is an English (UK) term for this?

Starke, gut bewurzelte Unterlagen aus eigener Produktion bilden die Basis für einen kräftigen, gut verzweigten Knip-Baum.

Thanks in advance for your help.

A feather is a branch that is produced in the same year as the leader. Feathers are sometimes produced in strong growing first year budded trees (although usually not enough feathers), or by a Knip-boom tree technique (where the one-year nursery tree is cut at the 60 cm (24") height and re-grown a 2nd year, producing feathers on a strong-growing leader). Research is ongoing to test plant growth regulators to induce feathering as well.

Some nurseries sell a 2-year branched tree, produced by growing the trees for a 2nd year in the nursery, but without the Knip cut (as above). On these trees, the side shoots are called branches, and are often not as precocious as feathers. Growing a tree with feathers takes extra care and expense in the nursery, so feathered trees are more expensive. When combined with the proper care, however, feathered trees will return the cost many times over.

Reference: here as an example of "redlove" trees

Reference information:
I understood that whatever fruit I get should be removed in the first year of planting so that the tree can use the energy to grow stronger instead. But I was planning to keep maybe 2 to try and share. Who would have thought that I only get 1 fruit??!!

the tree gets cut back in the first year to accelerate harvest of apples and it sometimes grown sideways

Reference: leg tree

Reference information:
Success depends upon sourcing the correct type of tree, called a ‘leg’ tree, or knipboom (literally ‘cut tree’ in Dutch),
grown on a dwarfing, M9 rootstock, with the graft union at least 20cm up the trunk.

http://www.blackmoor.co.uk/uploads/Leg Tree Article.pdf

The quickest and most popular way of producing leg or knip-boom trees is by bench-grafting the strongest rootstocks in the winter, usually with three-budded wood.

This is interesting :
One translation of the English term knipboom in Bulgarian is двугодишна (стандартна) фиданка.
